The looks of the Toyota GR Yaris screams performance. From the front to rear-end, you can see that Toyota has really been busy brewing this piece of machine. The hatch takes advantage of Toyota’s World Rally Championship (WRC) expertise and comes in a three-door form. It makes use of carbon fibre polymer and aluminium to keep the weight low. There’s a newly developed double-wishbone rear suspension, a MacPherson strut front suspension, and a wider rear track compared to the regular Yaris. The roofline has been lowered by 91 mm (3.6 inches) to obtain a coupe-like silhouette, and there are frameless doors along with 18-inch alloys serving as telltale signs this isn’t an ordinary Yaris.
